Thanks for the input, it's much appreciated! Banshee Elite 6 is probably top of my list right now.
I have seen those C-1 with the Red Reign but I agree, I'm not a huge fan of the back finish. I love natural Ash and the stain kinda ruins it for me lol.
If you could roughly compare how the pickups in the Banshee Elite are voiced, to something more mainstream, what might you compare them to?
What the superchargers are not: very scooped modern-metaly djent-only pickups a-la Ragnaroks.
What they are is very even, wide-frequency, medium high-gain pickups. Because they're even in lows/mids/highs, they will sound MASSIVE if left alone, but can also be sculpted pretty much however you want them with just a bit of EQ. And the harmonics....yum :chef's kiss:
For context, I play a bit of everything, from jazz (I wish ) to folk to extreme metal (dabbling into djent on occasion), and my top 3 all time for pickups would be Anderson H2/H3, BKP Rebel Yells/Nailbombs or Schecters such as Superchargers/Pasadenas. Those mostly do the same thing in my opinion (and that is doing most things extremely well) but in that group, The Superchargers would be the higher output ones.
